Why will the section "GOA Reviews & Awards" not be updated?

The game is on the back burner as far as Matrix is concerned - it's had it's 2 or so years of major sales, the developer isn't supporting it any more & presumably they're just getting a few sales with a fairly high profit on each having amortised whatever the fixed costs are.

I did ask Frank if he was interested in letting the gamers have a crack at doing some final debugging, but he intimated that the sales contract with Matrix didn't let him, and he wasn't really interested anyway

Such is the life of a minor game

Guns of August 1914 - 1918 is the child of Frank Hunter, right?

And now Frank leaves his child in the lurch?

Also for Matrix, it would be unusual to neglect his children. Erik!!!

What is this, a shame, a disgrace ...

It's certainly a shame, but it's silly to call it a disgrace when it is entirely predictable and normal in he world of minor game.
